International demand for North East offshore wind expertise

A delegation from Brazil’s national oil and gas company Petrobras will visit the North East next month to learn from companies in the region involved in the offshore wind sector.


Petrobras is involved in developing Brazil’s own offshore wind industry and will conduct the fact-finding mission to study how the region has been able to develop into a global leader in the sector.


During the visit, the delegates, joined by representatives from Brazil’s Department for International Trade, will take part in three days of activities hosted by Durham-based business development organisation NOF Energy.


This includes site visits to sector specialists across the region including Wilton Engineering, PD Ports, DeepOcean, Osbit and Smulders Projects UK.


They will also attend Offshore Wind North East at the Xcel Centre, Newton Aycliffe on Thursday 8 November.


Joanne Leng, deputy chief executive of NOF Energy, said: “The supply chain cluster in the North East is considered an exemplar within the industry and I’m confident Petrobras will gain a valuable insight into why it is a global leader in offshore wind energy.


“The fact the delegation has chosen to visit this region is an exceptional vote of confidence in the outstanding levels of expertise, knowledge and innovation based here.


“The UK and Brazil already has a positive relationship in the oil and gas sector and I hope this can be replicated in the offshore wind industry as the South American country develops its renewable infrastructure and capabilities.”
